400 followers and a case of OCD


The moment I got 400 followers

The moment I got 400 followers

Earlier today I was working hard to get up to 400 follower and I was successful! Took a few hours to get from 391 follower when I checked this morning to the 400 I have got now. I know 400 followers is nothing special but in my opinion it is pretty good and for me that is brilliant!

First attempt at making all the numbers round

However after watching some videos on YouTube then rating, favouriting and commenting them my tweets had creeped up to 6,500. At this point I thought, “400 is a round number… 6500 is a nice roundish number…. If I can get my listed up to 10 and my following down to 350 I will have a nice bunch of round statistics”. I went about this is the most simplest way I could think of, un-follow 8 useless people that I was following and list myself a few times! 😀 Took a few minutes to get perfect but I did it. But then, for some reason, I decided to close the tab without having taken the screen shot and by the time I was back it had all been screwed up by one idiot that decided to follow me! 😛

I kept refreshing just hopping someone would un-follow and after a few minutes they had, but after this amount of time YouTube had made another 2 posts on my twitter account (YouTube Auto share is delayed by a few minutes. My dreams of having perfectly round stats was over.

However, I could just fake it:
